Abstract

The technique described allows for a nearly anatomic reduction with correction of slippage as well as segmental kyphosis. Correction of the local deformity with monosegmental fusion L5/S1 improves dramatically the overall sagittal profile of the spine. Fusion of the primarily healthy segment L4/5 can be avoided.
